Our Cancun wedding plans just got a real, we’ve booked the finest Playa Mujeres resort for our destination beach wedding! I’ve been dreaming about a beach wedding since I was a little girl, I remember seeing one of my mom’s soap operas with a scene in paradise that stuck in my head. Barefoot in the sand in a flowy white dress blowing in the ocean breeze, flowers in my hair and a handsome man by my side, I can’t believe we’re getting married in Cancun!
Our Cancun Wedding is a GO!
As most of you know, Ben and I loooove the outdoors, we met on a kayak trip in Algonquin and the adventure hasn’t stopped! Trekking, camping, sailing, scuba diving, if it’s in the fresh air or on the water, we are IN! Getting married in Cancun is exactly what we envision to bring our families together to celebrate our love connection in nature.
Why getting married in Cancun is a GREAT idea
Why did we choose a Cancun wedding? After sitting down and making a list of our needs and desires for a destination wedding, Cancun checked all the boxes. We’ve got family and friends coming from all over Canada and the world and the international airport in Cancun has reasonably priced short flights from everywhere (well, some are longer than others, looking at you in Hong Kong, Shelley!) We know the weather is great, there are oodles of adventurous activities and we had a huge selection of resorts to choose from.
We did a LOT of investigating and reaching out to wedding coordinators and our decision to book finest Playa Mujeres was not made lightly. In the end, it was the friendly and personal attention by the wedding coordinators in our email exchanges that gave us the confidence to reserve our Cancun wedding at Finest Playa Mujeres.
Our Cancun Wedding Guests
The invitations have been sent and if you are one of our lucky guests, you’ll be joining us at Finest Playa Mujeres in May 2020! We had considered having an “adults only” wedding, but I just couldn’t imagine walking down the aisle without my sweet 3 year old niece Amelia as flower girl. The great thing about Finest Playa Mujeres is that it is a family-friendly resort with an adults-only section, we can have our grown up time and still enjoy the littlest members of the family! When reserving, be sure to indicate if you prefer the Excellence Club adults only or for those with munchkins, you’ll want to book the family suites!
I think what we are most excited about is spending a week with our favourite people! A wedding may be only a few hours together, a destination wedding is a way for us to really enjoy the bonding of our two families together. We are planning some fun events and pre-wedding activities, a pirate ship extravaganza and an Isla Mujeres catamaran cruise and a special rehearsal dinner with a surprise musical guest. We cannot wait to show you all the surprises we have in store!
In all of our Cancun wedding planning, through choosing colours and menus and flowers, the most important things have made themselves clear. Our love for one another, our love for our family and friends and our dreams of a happily ever after lifetime together.
We can’t wait to see you in Cancun!
